Pash Global and Erih Holdings Join Forces to Create a World-Leader Green Hydrogen Company



PASH Global (PASH), an impact investor and developer of clean power projects worldwide backed by commodities giant Trafigura, and ERIH Holdings (ERIH), a diversified global renewable investment company, are pleased to announce the creation of a 50-50 joint venture (the “JV”) to develop and invest green hydrogen and ammonia projects totaling 5 GW of electrolyser capacity.


The project will be powered by 10 GW of renewable energy generation capacity such as solar, wind, and geothermal in Italy, Spain, Turkey, Greece, Serbia and Colombia by 2030 which will be entirely consumed for captive needs of round-the-clock power and intermittent energy for green hydrogen.


The next step is to work together with potential partners to develop commercial and technical concepts in the first two projects located in Turkey and Italy. ERIH has been acting as the project coordinator, bringing all of the relevant parties together and organizing partnerships between customers and the system operators that will transport the hydrogen to the customer’s premises.


“Building the Next-Generation Utility is the vision of the JV”- said Akin Gunduz, CEO of ERIH Holdings. “Without hydrogen there can be no energy transition, no climate neutrality, and no move away from fossil fuels. Within this respect, for our hydrogen-related investments, we focused on opportunities that are likely to find their way to market in the next 5–10 years and are not as dependent on substantial, coordinated long-term government subsidies that have yet to be designated or allocated.”- added Akin Gunduz.


“The JV presents an exciting opportunity that would bring together our unique strengths and provide a scalable platform to supply our customers with affordable, reliable and ever-cleaner energy.” said Vine Mwense, Executive Director and Co-Founder of PASH Global.


“These are complex projects and there is still some way to go in terms of approvals, design, construction and commissioning but this is a major boost on the development of hydrogen in globally.” – commented Akin Gunduz.
